hurricanes igor and julia power through the atlantic. tropical storm karl threatens parts of the gulf of mexico. early this wednesday morning, parts of the gulf of mexico. early this wednesday morning, september 15th, 2010. captioning funded by cbs beautiful september morn here. sorry. >> ♪ september morn >> good morning, everyone. >> there's more fallout this morning from that jets locker room incident of over the weekend. more players speaking out saying you come in the locker room. basically you should expect to be ogled a little bit. spoken to. hmm. >> lots of debate going on. have a lot of dinner tables last night and conversation about a couple of new remedies for people with love handles. would you believe you can freeze them off? >> i will try anything.
7:02 am
>> we'll talk about that this morning, as well. we begin, though, this morning with politics as the tea party express bowls over some well-known republican candidates in tuesday's primary election. the biggest surprise, the senate primary in delaware. nancy cordes is in washington with the latest. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, harry. this is the most stunning victory yet for the tea parties and a crushing blow to the republican leader who is thought vice president's biden's former seat would be an easy pickup in the fall. not anymore. >> ladies and gentlemen, the people of delaware have spoken. no more politics as usual! >> reporter: it is perhaps the biggest upset of the political season so far. newcomer christine o'donnell defeating veteran congressman mike castle. >> i also want to thank the tea party express. >> reporter: the chair of whom the state party called o'donnell
7:03 am
a liar who could not be elected dogcatcher and yet the tea party conservative defeated the well-known mike castle 53% to 47%. o'donnell was a dark horse until two weeks ago when the tea party express barrelled into town bearing $250,000. and endorsement from sarah palin followed. the republican party scrambled. fearing the tea party would upset yet another gop establishment senate candidate as it already had in utah, alaska, kentucky and nevada. a last-minute robo call recorded by the former campaign manager -- >> o'donnell wanted to make a buck. >> reporter: -- wasn't enough to the uturn the tide. former attorney general kelly ayot slightly ahead of the la man tag in a race too close to call a. newcomer did win in new york defeating former hillary
7:04 am
clinton opponent and well-known gop candidate rick lazio. new york's primary for governor. >> i want everybody in the republican party who opposed me to know this. you're welcome to join the people's crusade. >> reporter: in the delaware, the moderate castle who's won in the blue state of delaware ten times was considered a shoe-in to defeat democrat chris coons come fall. o'donnell is a decided underdog. >> hold on to your hats, folks, because we are in for a fight. >> reporter: and if republicans don't win delaware, their chances of winning back the senate are almost nonexistent. democrats are seizing to argue that the republican party taken over by the right wing, that moderates need not apply. that's a rg ament they're taking into the fall, harry. >> nancy cordes in washington, thank you. joining us now to talk about the primaries and what happens in november are democrat strategist tonya acker in los
7:05 am
angeles and republican strategist dan bartlett in austin, texas. good morning to you both. >> good morning, harry. >> good morning. >> dan, let's talk about this. you got delaware. you got kentucky. you got alaska, utah. one after another after another. are all of the tea party victories good for the republican party? >> well, when you have a situation like with mike castle getting beat in delaware it gives you pause because it's going to be very difficult if not impossible for republicans now to gain that seat in the united states senate. having said that, though, harry, the intensity gap that we are seeing between the two parties this election cycle is mainly being fed by the tea party movement on the republican side so net-net it's still a gain. the prospect of taking over the house of representatives would not happen without this vibrant activity within the tea party so while you have the types of anomalies like we saw last night with mike castle going down, net-net i still think this is a
7:06 am
positive thing with a lot of long-term consequences for -- >> karl rove said last night it doesn't help us get the seat in the long run. from a democratic perspective, tanya, with the tea party really catching fire out there, how do you view it? >> well, i think it really presents democrats an opportunity. i mean, i think that they do have to be very careful. it is one thing to simply call a lot of candidates extremists which i happen to think they are but i think that the democratic message has to be bigger than that. the choice the country is presented with is that between one party that seems to be auditioning for a talk radio show host. you have folks like sharron angle saying taking up arms against the government and the democrats want to talk about extending unemployment benefits and regulating wall street so i think the voter haves a clear choice and i think dan is right. there is something of an
7:07 am
enthusiasm gap but i think that more democrats are going to be motivated to go to the polls when you hear what some of tea party candidates are saying. i don't think most of the country wants to repeal civil rights about. >> dan, you listen to tanya. i wonder if you're making a miscalculation at your own peril at, you know, this perceived enthusiasm gap. these people are literally changing the face of a party. dan? >> well, look. i mean, it is the case of the united states senate with some of the candidate races, the candidate themselves is going to make a difference in whether there's a victory or a loss but let's not lose historical sight here and that is the first midterm election of a new president is a referendum on that white house and on that leadership. and what we're seeing right now is a rejection of how the governance of democrats over the last 18 months has taken place both in the white house and the united states congress and that's why republicans while they're going to have issues like seeing in delaware and there's going to be other candidates that are not going to represent the entire republican
7:08 am
party, the bottom line is that right now things are shaping up for democrats to be a very long night for november. >> all right. tanya, very quickly. you have to confess there really is a throw the bums out mentality that's gotten some real traction. >> well, i think that that movement, that mentality, seems to be a relatively constant in washington but i think what democrats have to do is to demonstrate that they're interested in governing and not coming up with good sound bites for talk radio shows. >> well, we'll see. this is still unfolding even as we speak. tanya acker an dan bartlett, thank you. >> thanks, harry. >> thanks. >> all right. here's erica. harry, with a tonight get the latest on sarah shourd, the american hiker freed by iran after more than a year in prison. this morning, she is with her family in the middle east. but the two men arrested with her are not likely to follow her. elizabeth palmer in london this morning with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning.

7:10 am
marry. shourd still in oman this morning hasn't said when she'll head home to the united states where the release was bittersweet for the families of the men who remain in prison. >> just nice to see one coming home. anyways. great to see one coming home. you know? and hope that shane and josh can follow shortly. >> reporter: but yesterday, in teheran, the news wasn't good. the prosecutor said iran's courts are still preparing to try fattal and bauer for espionage. in the states, state department spokesman p.j. crowly issued a challenge to president mahmoud ahmadinejad saying bring the men with you when you come to the united nations in new york later this month. erica? >> cbs' elizabeth palmer in don london. joining us now are the mothers of the two hikers in the iranian prison.
7:11 am
good to have you both back with us this morning. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> have you been able to get any information at this point from sarah or someone that got it from sarah how your sons are doing? >> no. i'm very anxious to speak to sarah soon, to ask them how they're doing. >> which i imagine will be your first question. have you spoken with her mom at all, nora? >> no. we are anxiously awaiting that conversation. >> i'm sure. i'm sure you'll be one of the first phone calls when there's a chance to do that. does this give you any hope, though, for your sons' release? >> yes, it does. it does. we're very, very happy that sarah is with nora right now but it's our turn. it's time for josh to be with me and, of course, shane to be with cindy. so we're hopeful. we're hopeful. >> got to be -- hopeful and bittersweet, as well. have there been any signs since the beginning of the talks for sarah's release that you have to give you an indication maybe josh and shane will be home soon? >> well, we know they were three
7:12 am
hikers together and there are three innocent hikers together and we're hopeful that president ahmadinejad will recognize that as he has with sarah and let her leave the country. >> cindy, what's one of the first things you think you will ask sarah? >> first i'll tell her i love her and ask her how shane is. i want to hear as much about shane as possible. you know, they have a wedding to plan so we need shane out. we need josh out. so we can move forward with life. >> what's your major concern right now for your son? >> that he's released. you know, psychologically and fiphysically physically, he needs to be out there. my greatest concern is how hard it must have been for shane and sarah to separate and they have become very close to josh, also. the separation of these three must be extremely painful for them. >> i'm sure that's a major concern for you, as well. >> yes. they're a unit. they're a very tight unit. and i was very happy to hear
7:13 am
that josh and shane could say good-bye to sarah an enthat's a relief because they know that she's free and i'm sure they feel wonderful about that. but it is, again, their turn. their turn to taste freedom. >> any of these little things you are learning, allowed to say good-bye, the way things happen, are those any signs to you or is that reading -- trying to read the tea leaves a little bit too much? >> it is a humanitarian gesture. i'm grateful for that. that josh and shane could say good-bye to sarah. that's wonderful. but it is time for a release now. it is almost 14 months. we have not seen josh and shane for almost four months now. no phone calls, no letters. since we were in teheran. >> how do you keep going at this point, cindy? >> it's -- we just have to continue on. i feel stronger more now than ever to continue this and just get them released so they can all be with their families. you know?
7:14 am
i just -- it's hard to deal with shane not being here but quitting is not an option. and we are going to move forward until it's done. >> xleerly, they get strength from their mothers. good to have you both with us this morning and speaking with you soon when we hear what you have heard from your sons when they're released. thanks again. >> thank you. >> thank you. the rest of the top stories this morning. good morning. >> good morning. investigation is under way this morning into a pilot allegedly drunk who was pulled from the cockpit and arrested as he prepared to ache off. cbs news correspondent mark phillips has the latest this morning from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jeff. this involves a flight that was scheduled to fly from amsterdam to newark, new jersey, a delta flight number 35 due to fly yesterday. apparently it had already pushed back from the terminal and preparing for takeoff when police acting on an anonymous tip boarded the plane and breath lized the flight crew and discovered the captain to be just over the legal limit of alcohol in the blood and so he

the debate continues to rage this morning over charges a female reporter was sexually harassed by members of the new york jets. at the center of the argument a lot are talking about what she was wearing when it happened. her defenders say it doesn't matter. jets players and coaches were unprofessional to her, that's the issue. she told us there was nothing wrong with her outfit and proud of how she looks. in fact many pictures are online which many may deem provocative but does this enter in tuesday clinton portis added fuel to the fire with these commen comments. >> all of a sudden you see a nice woman in the locker room, i think men are gonna tend to turn and look and want to say something to that woman. >> he later apologized. a league official said his comments have for place in the nfl. join us are tara sullivan, sports columnist for a new
7:39 am
jersey us in paper and -- you have covered sports in 17 years in locker rooms about every major sport including the jets' locker room. a tough place to be, women have fought hard to be in there. is it something you have to expect as a female reporter no matter how you are dressed? >> absolutely not. it's sad if we are still expecting that. that battle was fought a long time ago whether or not women have a place in the locker room. the law has decided we do. this is how the job is done. when the locker room is opened to the media, it includes men and women and that's -- >> my place of work, a big point for me when one of the players during the incident saturday yelled out to another reporter, not to miss sainz, another intimidating and con saying thatth is our locker room. that's a big issue. for the hour it is open to the media, it is my workplace, as well. >> some people have come out and said, lauren, there is a responsibilities she has, as
7:40 am
well. that may be your locker room, a shared workplace at that point but she also has to go this there knowing certain things could take place, maybe she should have dressed a certain way. is that something women have to think about going into a locker room? >> i think it is an interesting question. i personally have never been in an locker room but in newsrooms, you have to dress the part. i think when it becomes distracting, i don't want to blame her and i, you know, i'm not personally involved in the situation, but when it becomes distracting you question is she dressed appropriately? >> how much has to do, too, with american perceptions of what's appropriate some she works for a mexican tv station. we've seen plenty of pictures of her online. perhaps things are done differently on her channel. so, is it okay? >> i agree. i think there is a cultural distinction here. i think think the way these stations operate and it fell to the jets when it got a request for media credentials from this reporter from this station could have done investigation and
7:41 am
found out this is nothing new from the station, not the only reporter who maybe acts that way or dresses or chooses to dress in certain ways. i think once they gave her, though, that credential, their players are now responsible to treat her with respect. >> you mentioned you have to dress a certain way, no matter what, in terms of respect and doing your job. is there a double standard? >> yes, it is a double standard but i do think, well, looks always play but she's also -- she's in entertainment. she's not just a reporter, she's on tv. and we have to consider at that moment in the locker room, she actually -- she wasn't on camera. so, was she dressed appropriately for that situation versus sort of playing the entertainment role of her job. >> has this been overblown a bit? she sat in our studio and told us it wasn't that big of a deal, i heard it and tuned it out and others seemed more bother. >> frankly, if she wasn't as beautiful as is, i didn't think it would be that big of a deal. >> it's an issue for me.
7:42 am
i work a lock in locker rooms. the way the jets players were interacting with her i thought was appropriate making her a target of things, to me, maybe she only had to come in once every six months and it blow up and there will be attention but i'm in there every day and if there is an indication that's how jets players or across the nfl when you listen to portis's comments that indication of underlying resentment is an issue to me and the primary issue. >> could there be two issues one being, yes, they need to act better in the locker room, it is inappropriate or also do we need to dress differently? i realize she works for a mexican channel but for an american reporter who goes in there do we need a certain dress code? >> i believe there are two separate issues. i think if you want to open a discussion on appropriate workplace attire in a locker room it wouldn't just be about the women who come in here. i've seen male reporters wearing team jerseys of the team they cover and i find that
7:43 am
inappropriate. i'm perfectly open to that. i would not choose to dress that way because in the way i want to do my job i don't feel that would be appropriate but i'm also not standing in judgment of the way others choose to dress. a very difficult and fine line to draw, as you can understand and i'm sure most feel. >> thank you g. to have both of you. i have a feeling a discussion may continue tonight at dinner tables, as well. just ahead the scoop on two new ways to attack those love handles. we are lightening up a little bit. this is "the early show" on cbs.
